to prolong his detention based on false claims that he had a u.k. visa application. while in custody, mr. magnitsky was tortured by officials hoping he would withdraw his testimony and falsely incriminate himself and his client. refusing to do so, his conditions and his health worsened. he stayed in an overcrowded cell with no heat, no sunlight and no toilet. the lights were kept on throughout the night to deprive him of sleep. mr. magnitsky lost 40 pounds and suffered from severe pan korea at this time is and gallstones. months went by without any access to medical care. despite hundreds of petitions, requests for medical examination and surgery were denied by russian government officials. so were family visits. after his arrest, mr. magnitsky saw his wife once and never again saw his children. on november 13, 2009, sergei magnitsky's condition detear your waited dramatically. doctors saw him on november 16. he was transferred to a moscow detention center that had medical facilities, and instead of being treated there immediately, he was placed in an isolation cell, handcuffed, beaten a

in the subset than in australia and the u.k., they tend to be only about 10 to 15%. money comes from the private sector in terms of equity, that is. and it really is because the cost of capital for that equity is definitely based on precedent deals north of 10% cost of capital. so for projects like this they would start with grant money first, then maybe any potential subsidized or low cost loans, and then eventually figure out how much more additional capital would be needed and dowled private sector come up with that amount. and given the size of the total project, i think we haven't had the ability to say if that's -- if there is enough capital to do that but in segments and given general interest in rail, i believe if structured appropriately there should be a way to do this. >> but you say 10 to 15% of the total project cost would come from private capital. >> that's right. >> where would the rest come from? >> if you look at some of the examples like the toll roads built in florida a lot of it comes from federal or state funds. it's not to say these are grants but a lot of times they are p
they weren't replaced at all so you didn't end one that productivty benefits. this was also the case in the u.k. where they've seen that sort of dwerjens so when you look at the difference between productivty of the public and preist sector, it's technology. private sector has been able to harvest the productivty benefits of technology to take cost out and take it out in a pretty radical way. and that just hasn't happened here. i hold a little bit more hope for mobile in this regard which i think mobile has an opportunity to be more trance formative because people will interact more with government and we've goten smarter about that sort of thing. but we have to start closing down systems which i don't think happened to tay great extent. >> i'll just give you my experience of an account executive before i came to congress as well. agencies focus on their buments and it is the nature of man that people do not like to -- you get your savings and you don't get the benefit of those savings, they go to somebody who isn't doing the same kind of thing. so the nature of government makes this difficult
do better in single-member districts. essentially the u.s., uk system. if it's one islamist facing one liberal, the islamist will almost always win. and then the last election, islamists wind, 82% of the individual sister and considerably less in the prc's. the opposition as a whole generally prefers straight pr and getting rid of the individual seats, but it's still too early to tell. that's one of the weird things is in the next two months they are going to have to have debate about the electoral system. i don't know if exact out that will work. part of it depends on the. i think the brotherhood will go down in vote share, but i wouldn't overstate the drop. again, the brotherhood does best on the district to district level. and they have asked parliamentarians who have personal connections with their constituency, and some of these constituencies are fairly small. so there's a kind of personal touch that's important to social service becomes more important. so on and so forth. so i think for that reason the brotherhood will drop but maybe not as much as people expect. >> so in a
of the capitol. he was a tour guide he showed me the shoeshine boy and says u.k. and 25 cents but if you can afford you give him a tip. there's a parlor shop, the bank, and then he took the on the floor and said that's where i sit. that's where you will sit. someday you'll sit there, by the chairman. and then i addressed mr. speaker and i will address you as the gentleman from hawaii. i will be damned if i'm going to call you by your name since i can't pronounce it.

in the u.k., david cameron as well as the president australia. >> steve: it happened 23 hours and 30 minutes ago when adam lanza, 20 years olds walked into na school after he broke the glass out after he murdered his mother and shot dead 20 children and six adults and heard great stories of heroism. things that teachers and members of that particular sandy hook elementary school, the things that they did, a lot of them did the right stuff. unfortunately, this was a guy intent on killing. >> alisyn: we'll get to the stories about the teachers and the students there, but first let's just talk about who adam lanza is, because of course, everyone wants to know if there was a spark, a sign where somebody could have seen what was going to come. he's 20 years old. parents divorced in 2009. he's lived alone with his mother in newtown, connecticut and his dad lived in stanford and brother. and his brother 24 years old. ryan, lived in hoboken. he believed his brother was somewhere on the autism spectrum, might have had as perfecti perfecti asperger's. and he was a computer nerd and love video
and australia and the uk. the political aspect would be huge. >> low-income students are risk averse. they do not have secret bank accounts where they can address the situation. and if they fail, the burdens of being on them. they are less likely to pursue a college education if it means earning more than their parents do in a year. we expect pell grant recipients to graduate with more debt than middle and upper income students. they are anywhere from 150% more likely to graduate. we are burdening those the least capable of the most that. the problem is that they are going to impact access. >> the point before you go on, a lot of that is about communicating to families what this means. it is far from perfect, but they are borrowing well beyond their families capability, baking on the fact that they will be able to. i don't disagree that there isn't a perfect model, but i think it has huge potential. >> i want to move on to questions from the audience because i want to get in as many as possible. i think what is interesting, so far, there seems to be a lot of changes that would take political
. that is what we have to worry about because we already see this happening. we also see in the u.k. that there are people being arrested. .t may be nasty stuff turning around, after the levison inquiry, regulating media. where is speech? this is a dangerous stance we are about to go under here. there is a fight over the effort to make google pay for the link.. if you can do that for media, maybe you can do it for bloggers like me. there is danger there. in dubai, they refused to have a favor of having the right on line. instead, they ordered the introduction of a firmly worded press release. speech is in danger this year. facebook is a place where we can share and can act. it is going wrong -- a round. i urge you to recognize that we must not only get enamored with new tools and toys. we have an obligation to protect the freedom. share and can act. we must protect the net.
